Mac OS X Tiger for Dummies for Apple Macintosh
"Fully updated! Covers the new features of Mac OS X v10.4"
Mac OS X Tiger For Dummies is divided into five logical parts:

Part I: Introducing Mac OS X
This first part is very, very basic training. From the mouse to the Desktop, from menus, windows, and icons to the snazzy-but-helpful Dock, it’s all here. A lot of what you need to know to navigate the depths of Mac OS X safely and sanely will be found in this section. And although old-timers may just want to skim through it, you newcomers should probably read every word. Twice.
Part II: Rounding Out Your Basic Training
In this part, I build on the basics of Part I and really get you revving with your Mac. Here I cover additional topics that every Mac user needs to know, coupled with some hands-on, step-by-step instruction. It starts with a closer look at the program you’ll be using most, the OS X Finder, followed by a chapter about how to open and save files (a skill you’re sure to find handy). Next comes a chapter about managing your files for maximum efficiency followed by a quick look at using removable media (which means ejectable disks — CDs, DVDs, and even oldies but goodies such as Zip drives). Last, but certainly not least, is a chapter about the importance of backing up your data — and how to do it painlessly.
Part III: Doing Stuff with Your Mac
This part is chock-full of ways to do cool stuff with your Mac. In this section, you’ll discover the Internet first — how to get it working on your Mac, and what to do with it after you do. Next, I show you the ins and outs of printing under OS X. You also read about some of the more important OS X-related applications and features, plus how to make your Tiger look and feel just the way you like it. That’s all followed by the lowdown on the Classic Environment, and possibly the most useful chapter in the whole book, Chapter 13, which details each and every gosh-darned System Preference, filled with useful observations and recommendations.
Part IV: Networking and Troubleshooting
Here I get into the nitty-gritty underbelly of Mac OS X, where I cover somewhat more advanced topics, such as file sharing, creating and using multiple users (and why you might want to), and the all-important troubleshooting
chapter, Chapter 15.

Part V: The Part of Tens
Finally, it’s The Part of Tens, which may have started life as a Letterman ripoff, although it does include heaping helpings of tips, optional software, great Mac Web sites, and hardware ideas.
The Appendix
Last, but certainly not least, I cover installing Mac OS X Tiger in the Appendix. The whole process has become quite easy with this version of the system software, but if you have to install Tiger yourself, it would behoove you to read
this helpful Appendix first.
